Disaster prevention study session for parent and child

After Typhoon Hagibis (Reiwa 1 East Japan Typhoon), we, JEN, have done our best to support disaster recovery in Marumori-machi. We held study sessions 25 times with 516 participants last year. In these sessions, a family with a disabled child raised the problem of difficulty in evacuation. Furthermore, there is an opinion that disabled children need to learn how to save their lives in a disaster while alone.

Following these opinions, on February 7, we held a study session for parents of disabled children. At a discussion after the study session, some participants pointed out the necessity of regular training sessions, disaster shelters designed for disabled people, separate space in shelters for each family, etc.

We sincerely appreciate the great help from the Marumori-machi Handicapped Children's Parents Association. We hope the continuous support from participants of the study session, the health and welfare department of Marumori-machi and all the residents from Marumori-machi.
